FROM THE 2ND DUKE OF NEWCASTLE DINNER SERVICE. A very fine George III Serving Platter made in London in 1772 by Parker & Wakelin.


The Platter is shaped oval in form and rises to an applied gadrooned border. The border is engraved with the Arms, Coronet and Motto of the Second Duke of Newcastle. The Platter is in excellent condition and is very well marked on the reverse. It is also engraved with its original scratch weight and number in the dinner service, this being No.13. Although made two years earlier than the vegetable dishes, they would have been in the same service, the difference in dates is just where the Duke asked Parker & Wakelin to extend the number of pieces in the service, as his scale of entertaining increased. This piece would be ideal for serving a joint of meat, bird or fish. The full biographical details with regard to the second Duke can be seen with the vegetable dishes, the next item on the website.
